NESCBWI, Springfield, MA

                                                            I am at the NESCBWI annual conference. This year it's in Springfield, MA. This is home to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden - yeah, I had fun there today!

'A Whole New World' - G.Keller 2012

Here is my poster for the conference contest. I decided (actually family members convinced me) to go with this illustration. This year's theme is "A Whole New World". I have a full weekend of workshops ahead of me and I'm psyched.

here's the 'real' building... what's with the clocks?

I even have a cool view out my 10th floor window!

NESCBWI Conference Illustrations, Fingerless Monkey Mittens

March was a very busy month with National Board certification work, student art shows, and working on my portfolio.

The New England chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators annual conference is April 20-22. Here are my two takes for this year's theme: A Whole New World. (They aren't quite done).

Here are mittens I donated to this year's 'Fun Fair' at school. They are a simple variation on my fingerless pattern.
